I am from Philadelphia. I don't know if you folks knew that, but although I haven't lived there for the past four years, I still refer to myself as "from Philadelphia."
When I was younger, I took a trip to the Franklin Institute, where I found out that literally every question the docent asked our tour group could be answered with "Benjamin Franklin." I was quick to learn that this is the answer to every question about the city.
Here is a piece that is inspired loosely by The Areas of My Expertise by John Hodgman. There is a brief mention that Benjamin Franklin is difficult to trust because he uses a pseudonym (Poor Richard). Here are some other facts about him:
Benjamin Franklin did not actually have a time-traveling rivalry with Mark Twain. I'm not sure whether he had a kite fetish or not, but I think it's safe to say he most definitely did.

My next piece is about Hamlet.
Oh, hey. You know Jeremy, right? He's a bro of mine. He also just won a Gold Medal from Spectrum for the best unpublished piece in their 16th issue. Boy, what a champ.
